Grant to Greek start-ups to par­tic­i­pate in SXSW

Kathimerini English - - Focus -

The Hel­lenic Ini­tia­tive and the US Em­bassy in Athens are sup­port­ing Greek rep­re­sen­ta­tives at the in­ter­na­tional South by South­west (SXSW) fes­ti­val for a fourth year in a row. The event opened on March 10 at Austin, Texas, and con­tin­ues through Sun­day. The joint ini­tia­tive is help­ing 12 Greek start-ups present their prod­ucts and ser­vices at one of the most im­por­tant events world­wide in the do­main of tech­nol­ogy and en­trepreneur­ship with a grant of $50,000. These com­pa­nies are, As­palis Concierge, Ath­lenda, Boardmaps, Cen­taur Tech­nolo­gies, Fil­mo­grafik Pro­duc­tions, Hop­wave, In­fitheon, InSyBio, SIBA Soft, Tac­ti­cal Sys­tems and 100men­tors.

Take­off. Emi­rates’ first daily di­rect Athens-New York (Ne­wark) flight took off on Sun­day, with spe­cial ef­fects pro­vided by Athens In­ter­na­tional Air­port au­thor­i­ties. The ser­vice, which is the sec­ond leg of the Dubai-Ne­wark route, has been crit­i­cized by US air­lines which say Emi­rates re­ceives state sub­si­dies which give it an un­fair ad­van­tage.
